Nature in Shree Muktananda Ashram II

On the Siddha Yoga path, we acknowledge the presence of the Divine in all of creation—and this divinity is revealed in myriad forms in the natural world. The beauty and wonder we find in nature can inspire us, as seekers, to recognize the beauty within us and everywhere around us.

The Nature Gallery contains photographs taken in the wondrous environs of Shree Muktananda Ashram, where Gurumayi currently resides. The Ashram is located in upstate New York, surrounded by expansive forests and rolling hills, brimming with wildlife. Take your time as you view the gallery. Allow the images to transport you to the serene stillness of the Guru’s abode, and let nature’s splendor connect you to the splendor of your own great heart.

Nature is so bright at Shree Muktananda Ashram! The flowers, the trees, even the grass—all seem to have a special internal light and energy. All seem to receive energy from the prayers and the chanting, and from Gurumayi’s gaze as she passes by. There is a fullness, a grace, a special order in every manifestation of nature in these photos. Even the sky speaks with the clouds and often with astonishing lights.
I heard once Gurumayi say that you can learn a lot by looking at the sky in Shree Muktananda Ashram. This is how I began to learn to understand the language of the divine in nature.

The photographs that mix the beauty of the land and the animals of Shree Muktananda Ashram are so vibrant and peaceful. And the photographs that depict nature with the sacred places in the Ashram are double magic for me—like the photograph that pictures the orange flag signaling that the Guru is in residence with the full moon just above it, or the one showing the reflection of the small white lights in the inner sanctum of the Bade Baba Temple with an illuminated Lord Ganesh and the full moon outside. The artistry and bhava are astonishing and inspire a sweet longing inside my heart.
